God is with us!

Dear Reverend Clergy and Faithful Laity of the Diocese,

I am writing today to update you on our plans for the remainder of Great Lent, Holy Week and Pascha. This morning the Executive Committee of the Assembly of Canonical Orthodox Bishops of the United States of America (of which I serve as Secretary) met for its weekly meeting to discuss ideas and options available to us on how to proceed in these most confusing, fearful and disturbing times.  We received and reviewed the most updated information from governmental, health, and scientific authorities.

SPF50 MINISTRY
Praying together and reading Scripture together are pillars of a Christ- centered Orthodox Christian family. While families may desire to have these activities in their home, they may not be sure how to start. SPF50 intends to help our families bridge that gap. SPF stands for “Scripture, Prayer, Family” and is designed to equip families to read the Scriptures and pray together at home.

This will be an ongoing parish-centered program to help families have quality time with our Lord and with one another, both of which are hard to come by. 

SPF50 will start at the beginning of Great Lent 2020 with the Gospel of Mark.
Copies of SPF50’s first publication are available in each parish and on the SPF50 Web Page
 

Weekly Message

Here is this week's offering from SPF50.  A brief message to encourage us in our life of faith at home with our families.  Each week SPF50 will bring us a new audio or video recording to help us.  This week's offering is for those reading The Gospel of Mark Chapters 5 and 6.
